Capital Care Collaborative (CCC) works to increase access to appropriate levels of care for, and improve health outcomes of, Wake County’s uninsured. CCC has four programs – Project Access of Wake County, Patient Navigation, Living Healthy, and Health Insurance Marketplace Navigation. The collaborative allows CCC members to provide medical care in a coordinated fashion for the low-income community while facilitating ongoing communication, coordination of services, assessment of community health needs, identification of priorities, and initiation of working partnerships among providers.
Through our valuable partnerships, Project Access of Wake County received over $16 million in donated care and approximately 3500 individuals have received medical care in 2016.
The Patient Navigation program receives about 85 referrals a month. Approximately 50% of these referrals are linked to primary care homes, other health care services, and/or provided information about community resources.
“I can live!” exclaimed a participant in the Living Healthy Chronic Pain Self-Management program. This individual had been living with chronic pain for years and began the program thinking that it would be a waste of her time. However, as the classes progressed, she became the first person to class and the last to leave. The program helped her to learn new and effective ways to manage her pain. The Living Healthy program is an evidence based program that provides support and tools for chronic disease, diabetes, and chronic pain. The Living Healthy program has had 143 participants in the past year with a 67% completion rate. 66% have had an increase in self-efficacy.
As a result of our work, our patients have experienced improved health outcomes, increased management of chronic diseases, decreased unnecessary emergency service utilization, and overall better quality of life.
